  • GWP in Action 2009-2013 - Reflections in International Year of Water Cooperation - Kenzo Hiroki Member, GWP Steering Committee
  • - IWRM is a decisive element for survival- -A lesson of Great East Japan Earthquake
  • Great East Japan Earthquake - 18,000 people and 100 billion USD were lost - 3Photo: Tohoku Construction Association March 11th, 2011 View slide
  • A miracle in Kamaishi City 1,000 people died out of a population of 40,000 by Tsunami in March 11, 2012 In Kamaishi City Only 5 out of the 2,900 primary and junior high school students lost their lives. A casualty rate of 0.17 % is 1/15 of the rate for the general public (2.5%, (55% in tsunami in 1896)) View slide
  • A miracle and a tragedy in 3.11 Tsunami  Strong awareness that tsunami may come at any moment  Students and teachers have cooperated for creating hazard maps  Community working with schools to be prepared for tsunami (drills, etc.)  Lack of understanding that tsunami may reach the school  Children were kept in school while teachers discussed what to do  The school was not in a flood zone in community tsunami hazard map A miracle in schools of Kamaishi City Casualty rate: 0.17% A tragedy in a school in a northern city Casualty rate: 70% Pre-disaster IWRM (IFM) process was decisive element in the miracle
  • People’s Participation IWRM Process creates a “miracle” Progress of Water Cooperation 2. Conceptualization of tsunami evacuation 4 2 1 5 3 5. Miracle of Kamaishi 1.Awareness on tsunami risk 3. Consultation with family and community through children 4. Tsunami education, drills & community practice
  • “Can we afford losing our children by lack of IWRM?” Our Lesson
  • GWP in Action 2009-2011
  • Events affecting our water in 2009-2013 1. Recurrent Water Challenges  Still lack of access to water and sanitation Mega Flooding, Tsunami and other water-related Disasters (Floods in Pakistan, Thailand, China, US, Caribbean, India, etc. Tsunami in Japan, Drought in Africa, Australia, U.S., etc.) Regional and national water disputes/conflicts 2. Social crisis affecting water Economic boom and debacle Food and Energy Crisis Increasing urban problems
  • Events affecting our water in 2009-2013 3. Global water/non-water discussion dictating our future Climate Change Dialogue Process (COP, etc.) Rio+20 and Post-2015 Agenda UN and other resolutions (UN-GA human right for water and sanitation, UN 5 Year Drive of Sustainable Sanitation, International Year of Water Cooperation, UN World Toilet Day…)  Globalization of water issues have happened  New lessons and challenges have been learnt

  • Have we had enough money, and will we have it?
  • 30 GWP Budget: 2002 - 2016 2004-2008 Strategy 2009-2013 Strategy  GWP crossed financial “death valley” without affecting support to regions/countries  GWP has good financial prospect in the next period
  • How have we spent money? 68%7% 3% 22% GWPO Total Expenditure 2010-2012 Region/Countries Tool Box/Technical Support Global Governance Secretariat Total: 26.9million EUR/3 years  We had not much, but Max for Regions/Countries  We will have sufficient funds for next strategy  Special thanks to Ania and the Secretariat for their straightjacketing and fundraising efforts
  • 32 1. Have we grown? Yes! 2. Have we seen satisfactory advancement of IWRM? Yes! 3. Have we responded to emerging water challenges fast enough? Yes! 4. Have we had enough money ? No, but we will! GWP in 2009-2013 Key Questions
  • What to do next? - Towards Next Strategy -
  • What will you do collectively/individually in the next strategic period? Starting from better status of IWRM; with increased number of GWP Partners; with established recognition of GWP and IWRM; based on your achievement in the Region/ Country; equipped with extensive knowledge chains and available technology; and with closer ties with your partners and friends in the Region/Country
  • Wake up call IWRM still does not have secure position in Post-2015 Agenda - Do not assume that IWRM is given -
  • Goal 1: End Poverty  Build resilience and reduce deaths from natural disasters by x% Goal6:Achieve Universal Access to Water & Sanitation  Provide universal access to safe drinking water at home, and in schools, health centers, and refugee camps  End open defecation and ensure universal access to sanitation at school and work, and increase access to sanitation at home by x%  Bring freshwater withdrawals in line with supply and increase water efficiency in agriculture by x%, industry by y% and urban areas by z%  Recycle or treat all municipal and industrial wastewater prior to discharge Post-2015 Target on Water proposed by HLP
  • Including “Universal Access to Benefit of IWRM” in Post-2015 Water Target  National/Basin Plans of IWRM  Implementation & monitoring mechanism of the Plans  Governance Structure of IWRM  Resources Arrangement for IWRM to happen  Assurance of people’s participation in the IWRM Process  Coverage of IWRM Plans in Countries and Basins  Legal/administrative framework for IWRM  Implementation mechanism and structure  Resource arrangement by Countries  Number of people which are covered by the above “Universal Access” Benchmarks
  • Influencing Post-2015 Process “One push/partner will make big changes” Countries -Thematic Consultation -Regional Consultation UN- System Task Team High Advisory Groups (HLP, SDSN) Leaders Member States Open Working Group UN General Assembly 2,800 GWP Partners GWP Regions GWP Countries Thousands of Friends of GWP GWPO GWP-TEC Friends of GWPO/TEC Mobilizing Stakeholders, Media & Private Sector
  • Epilogue: Cooperation to plant cherry blossom trees along the tsunami footprint • Activities to plant cherry blossom trees along the border line which the 3.11 tsunami reached • An attempt by community to remind local people of tsunami for years to come People’s efforts to turn lessons into better water cooperation continue not to repeat the tragedy
  • Thank you
  • Progress of Climate Change Convention • 2009 — COP15 in Copenhagen Copenhagen Accord was taken note by the COP. Countries submitted pledges on emissions reductions or mitigation action, all non-binding. • 2010 — COP16 in Cancun Cancun Agreements, a set of significant decisions to address the long- term challenge of climate change collectively and comprehensively, was largely accepted by the COP. • 2011 — COP 17 in Durban The Durban Platform for Enhanced Action was accepted by the COP to deliver a universal greenhouse gas reduction protocol, legal instrument, etc. for the period beyond 2020. • 2012 — COP18 / CMP8 in Doha Timetable for the 2015 global climate change agreement and increasing ambition before 2020 was agreed. The Doha Amendment to the Kyoto Protocol was adopted by the CMP at CMP8.
